Entry written by Secunia.

SC Magazine’s article, ‘Report says firms must rethink patching strategy’ by Greg Masters, discusses how applying the optimal patching strategy can significantly reduce vulnerability risks. The article specifically draws on the findings in Secunia’s Half Year Report 2011, which reveal that such risks can be reduced by up to 80%.

The article states: “With two billion users now accessing the internet, even a small success rate of attacks on endpoints translates to huge numbers of compromised systems. Exacerbating the situation is the fact that endpoints are difficult to secure since they host numerous programs and plug-ins, and are engaged in countless ways by users.”

The key to a successful, intelligent patching strategy is identifying the “right” programs to patch – it is this approach that enables effective remediation.
